Pope Stephen IV

Pope Stephen IV was Bishop of Rome and ruler of the Papal States from June 816 to his death in 817. Stephen belonged to a noble Roman family, he was consecrated pope on or about 22 June 816. The following October, he crowned Louis the Pious, Holy Roman Emperor at Rheims, persuaded the emperor to release some Roman political prisoners he held in custody, he died the following January. The son of a Roman noble called Marinus, Stephen IV belonged to the same family which produced the Popes Sergius II and Adrian II. At a young age he was raised at the Lateran Palace during the pontificate of Pope Adrian I, it was under Stephen's predecessor Pope Leo III that he was first ordained a Subdeacon before he was subsequently made a Deacon. Popular among the Roman people, within ten days of Leo III's death, he was escorted to Saint Peter's Basilica and consecrated Bishop of Rome on 22 June 816, it has been conjectured that his rapid election was an attempt by the Roman clergy to ensure that the emperor could not interfere in the election.

After his consecration he ordered the Roman people to swear fidelity to the Frankish king and Roman emperor Louis the Pious, after which Stephen sent envoys to the emperor notifying him of his election, to arrange a meeting between the two at the emperor's convenience. With Louis’ invitation, Stephen left Rome in August 816, crossing the Alps together with Bernard, the King of the Lombards, ordered to accompany Stephen to the emperor. In early October, the Pope and Emperor met at Rheims, where Louis prostrated himself three times before Stephen. At Mass on Sunday, 5 October 816, Stephen consecrated and anointed Louis as emperor, placing a crown on his head, claimed to belong to Constantine the Great. At the same time he crowned Louis’ wife Ermengarde of Hesbaye, saluted her as Augusta; this event has been seen as an attempt by the papacy to establish a role in the creation of an emperor, placed in doubt by Louis' self-coronation in 813. While with Louis, the emperor gave Stephen a number of presents, including an estate of land granted to the Roman church.

They renewed the pact between the Popes and the kings of the Franks, confirming the privileges of the Roman church, the continued existence of the emerged Papal States. Stephen raised Bishop Theodulf of Orléans to the rank of Archbishop, had Louis release from their exile all political prisoners from Rome, held by the emperor resulting from the conflict that plagued the early part of Pope Leo III's reign, it is believed that Stephen asked Louis to enforce reforms for the clergy who lived under the Rule of Chrodegang. This included ensuring that the men and women who lived there were to stay in separate convents, that they were to hold the houses under a title of common property, he regulated how much food and wine they could consume. After visiting Ravenna on his way back from Rheims, Stephen returned to Rome before the end of November 816. Here, he discontinued Leo III's policies of favouring clergy over lay aristocracy. After holding the traditional ordination of priests and bishops in December and confirming Farfa Abbey’s possessions on condition that every day the monks would recite one hundred "Kyrie Eleisons" as well as a yearly payment to the Roman Church of ten golden solidi, Stephen died on 24 January 817.

He was buried at St. Peter's, was succeeded by Pope Paschal I.
